I don't think that people have really caught on to the degree to which wireless communication will change file sharing. Previously, you needed to use the internet to share files (unless you were just swapping tapes), which meant that a central authority could monitor your activity. Wireless file sharing - this article described how to share files wirelessly from your iPod - circumvents that central control, as the signal travels directly from person to person. The only way to control sharing is to control the end-user device (as they have managed to do with mobile phones) and to make it illegal to break into your own computer. More on this from Alec Couros.
